Vans and truth have teamed up to launch the first-ever Vans x truth collaboration. For this special project, truth tapped Austin-based graphic designer and lifelong skateboarder Brett Stiles to create custom graphics based on truth fact #240: Big Tobacco’s products kill 113 people from secondhand smoke every day.
Brett is a designer, art director and artist based in Austin, Texas. His inspiration comes from his son, skateboarding, music, graffiti, table tennis, industrial design and travel.
“I grew up wearing Vans, and being obsessed with skateboarding and skate culture. I’m still an avid skater, and more relevant to this project, I am 100% on-board with truth’s mission. This project has been a dream come true – I’ve gotten to combine my love for graphic design and skateboarding, with a cause I feel so passionate about. Stoked is an understatement.”
Consisting of a pair of shoes, socks and a tee, the Vans x truth capsule releases online at vans.com on August 1st and in-store at select Vans retail locations on September 4th.
